Cleaner air = healtiheier employees

10/12/2018 (Permalink)

If you think the air you breathe indoors is cleaner than what’s outside, think again. The EPA estimates indoor air can be two to five times more polluted than outdoor air. All that bad air translates into everything from frequent colds and sore throats to headaches, asthma, allergies and chronic fatigue, which in turn causes employee downtime.

When dust and debris and other contaminants build up in your heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system, they can trigger allergies and other health problems. But they also reduce energy efficiency, which increases your energy costs. Now you have two compelling reasons to make sure the air ducts and HVAC system in your workplace are running efficiently.

If your HVAC has been operating for some time without attention, it could be circulating one or more of the following:

Dust

Pollen

Odors

Dirt and debris

Other contaminants

SERVPRO of Middletown Springboro Professionals routinely inspect the heating, ventilation and air conditioning unit (HVAC).  Keeping them clean can extend the life of the equipment. This can in turn save you money and give you cleaner air to breathe.

Ways to Keep your toilet from flooding

10/12/2018 (Permalink)

1. Put Up Signs

Posting basic rules for waste disposal near toilets can reduce the frequency of clogs and flooded toilets in a property. Recommend occupants and guests dispose of all feminine hygiene and paper products other than toilet paper in trash cans or containers and place these receptacles in convenient locations.

2. Provide Alternative Disposal Containers

It is a good idea to supply every stall in a women's bathroom with some type of bin to offer a convenient disposal alternative to flushing. By making the disposal of products that should not be flushed easier and more discreet, you can prevent clogs and backups before they start.

3. Order Thinner Toilet Paper

Single-ply paper is less likely to cause a clogged toilet than thicker toilet paper. Even if a building occupant or guest flushes a large wad of thinner paper, it is less likely to cause an overflow than two-ply or cushioned paper or wipes. You may also want to consider a toilet paper dispenser that restricts the amount of paper that can be rolled out at a time.

These three steps can reduce the likelihood, or at least the frequency, with which toilets flood a commercial property. If your property does suffer water or sewage damage as a result of a clogged toilet or toilet overflow, contact a plumber to eliminate the clog and SERVPRO of Middletown Springboro’s expertise and equipment to repair these types of water damage.

Purpose of a flood cut

10/10/2018 (Permalink)

After a storm rages it is likely that your home will experience a bit of flooding. When this happens, you will probably hear the water professionals from SERVPRO you hire talk about making a flood cut. A flood cut is a mark that is made 12 inches above the spot where the water damage stops. Specialists tear out everything below the flood cut to stop the spread of contamination and prevent mold growth. Here are some common questions about this process.

1. What Circumstances Require a Flood Cut?

Any time there is damage that cannot be dried with a fan, professionals are probably going to use a flood cut to be on the safe side. Insulation cannot be dried, so if there is wet insulation, the wall has to be cut out and the insulation removed. If the water is contaminated by storm-related debris or sewage, the wall must be discarded. If tests show any harmful microbes, the affected area must go.

2. Why Does the Flood Cut Have To Be a Foot Above the Damage?

Water damage from flooding does not like to stay politely in its place. What technicians can see with the naked eye may only be the beginning of the story. Placing the flood cut 12 inches above the visible water damage ensures that everything affected is remediated.

3. Is There Any Way To Save the Wall?

If the water damage is minimal and no insulation is affected, it is possible that quick removal of water and fast drying techniques can allow the wall to be salvaged. The water in question must also be clean. If it is contaminated at all, the wall has to be replaced.

Water removal

Extracting Water From Pipe Break

The next step after inspection is water cleanup, which is a major mitigation strategy after a supply line break or pipe break. This involves removing water from all the rooms in a flooded home using vacuums and pumps. The extent of the damage caused by water in home determines the type of equipment the restoration company will use. The water should be removed as soon as possible to avoid bacterial and mold growth. The water from a supply line break or pipe break should be contained and extracted immediately to prevent further damage in a flooded home.

It is advisable to remove all wet materials like toys, clothing, pillows, throw rugs, and carpets from the affected area before water cleanup. Our professionals can expedite drying by removing wet surfaces on floors, ceiling, and walls after water cleanup. Unsalvageable dry walls or insulations such as baseboards should be removed to accelerate drying. The other method that can be used to accelerate drying in a water cleanup process involves opening cabinet doors and drawers.
